Operation Beautiful #2

12 Aug

It is crazy to me how much more insane things to cover in the news. People were bullied so they get plastic surgery at age 14. People are killing themselves at an age where they should be playing dodgeball. Even girls trying to get diet pills before they are 18. I  just don’t get it. What has changed with this world? Well I have decided that I am going to help end it.

Last week I did a post about Operation Beautiful and let me tell you I have done nothing but walk around with ideas of what I can do during the week! I will see something that brings an idea about and I can’t help but think – hey?!

I am so excited to do these upcoming things and I encourage you to check back and even tell me about things you have done so I can post them. Please make sure you send them on to Caitlyn over at and she will put them on her website for ALL to see!!!  Let’s get this thing started!!!


5 Things I Would Like To Start A Group About

11 Aug

#1 – Happiness Project – Seriously one of the best books about becoming happier and finding ways to smile again! You should definitely read it!  I would like to start a group of like-minded people who meet up once a month (virtually, or what not) to think of things they really want to do that month. If it works out great, if not no big deal – maybe in the process they discovered something else they want to try!  Some of the ones from the book were – make time for exercise, sing in the morning, be nice, meet 3 people….  I think we all have things we want to do again or for the first time…why not get some girls together – it would be great encouragement!

#2 – Operation Beautiful – I am loving the concept of this. Caitlyn did awesome when she did this. I have already decided to devote my Sunday blog to her…so why keep going? It isn’t hard – just help people end the dreaded “Fat Talk” in any way you know how.  This group would not have any requirements except that you participate. How fun is that? We would just talk about ideas of what we are doing maybe via a Facebook group or something. But no mar commitment and sending the pictures of the end result to Caitlyn to post on her blog.

#3 – Round Robin Book Club – 6 or 12 people are needed – everyone starts out with a new book to read – then each month it gets passed on to the next person. Fun, right? I know!

#4 – Accountability Group – People who need to get more on track with their reading of the Word and maybe a Bible Study in there. I had talked about this on Monday in my Weekly Chase post – but I am serious…I think this is a great thing and I am glad I have three people who are wanting to join in! No judgement – just encouragement!

#5 – Scentsy Month Club – yes I am a dork….but this is something I love. I love Scentsy! I am a person who is signed up to sell it, but I just don’t do it like that. I buy for gifts and myself. Yeah I am selfish! Every once in a while I get in to a sale – but not often.  SO – what I am curious of – does anyone what to join a club? Each month you would purchase a minimum of product…then once a month you would be “hostess” and can get the hostess benefits! So say you get 5 people – the club would run 5 months and you would have to spend $30 each month. 6 people is 6 months and $25 dollars. Best way to stock up on scents and then buy a warmer with your benefits! I am also thinking of giving the profit to charity….what do you think? see what you think!

Sooooo – if you are interested – or have more ideas – let me know!

Operation Beautiful

5 Aug

Operation Beautiful is something that I stumbled across and I honestly can’t remember how – but it doesn’t even matter because I found it.  This was one of the best things I could have ever found!

Caitlin Boyle is the founder of this mission and her website Operation Beautiful her mission is stated as:

The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.”  If this little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic negative self-talk is  — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

She goes on to say:

I began Operation Beautiful by leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store.  I scribble down whatever comes to mind — “You are beautiful!” or “You are amazing just the way you are!”  My personal goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.

Then she explains how you can help as well:

Operation Beautiful is simple: all you need is a pen and a piece of paper.  If you want to join the mission, send me an e-mail at with a photograph of your Operation Beautiful note or a description of your experience, and I’ll post it on the Operation Beautiful site for thousands of others to read and enjoy!

The neatest thing – Caitlin responds to the emails herself! I was so excited to exchange a couple of ideas with her and know it was actually her!

I was so intrigued by the website that I went and bought her book Operation Beautiful: Transforming the Way You See Yourself One Post-It Note at a Time

I can’t say much more than I love the idea behind this and the book that goes with it!

This YouTube clip is posted on her website (that is where I am copying it from) and I loved it…check it out!

Caitlin also blogs over at and again – it is another great website!

I am so passionate about the Operation Beautiful mission to end negative “Fat Talk” – that I am going to dedicate my Sundays to Operation Beautiful. Please come back and check it out and email Caitlin with your photos as you join in!
